Mrs. Baressi's class was one of very conflicting emotions for me. The class was very challenging and she is a tough grader. Although she will make you work for that grade, in the long run it is worth it. Mrs. Baressi helped me get a 4 on the AP test and a 99 on the regents. As long as you do all the work assigned and put in the extra effort required of an AP class you'll do just fine.

She's nice but that doesn't make the work load she gives you right. prepare to teach yourself and go to MRs.Botta's review when possible

She is so nice! She is kind of a mess but she keeps her personal life completely separated from work so I see no reason to judge her for that; everyone has their issues. She's pretty unorganized though and lost my friend's work twice. She is definitely one of the nicest teachers I have ever had! I love her class and really miss it.

she is a mess. I agree with those who said her life is a mess. I too have heard some bad stuff about her personal life which makes you question her morals and ethics..... no boundries, no ethics.

Mrs. Baressi is an amazing person. She is so helpful and kind and will go out of her way help her students. She always had a productive lesson and her teaching ethics are very professional. SHe is by far one of the most influential person I ever known.

She is one of the nicest teachers I have ever had! Once AP test time comes around she will stay after with you until 4:30 and she will let you order pizza if there are enough kids in extra help. Once it is time to take the ap exam you feel totally prepaired as long as you put I the extra effort. She is very unorganized but I caught her crying once so she probably has a lot going on but she separates her personal life from the classroom which is good! Look out for all the homework though it's bad

Best teacher ever. All the work load was worth it cause once you walk into the AP exam you'll think it's a joke. She's super friendly which is always a plus and she always has extra help cause she pretty much lives at the school

A very skilled teacher for an otherwise easy class. While her lessons are interesting and wake me up, I'm not sure she would be able to tame a bad class- considering how friendly she is with us.

Anyone who said anything but good things about Ms. Barresi is wrong. She is by far the best teacher I've had and my favorite. She does give a lot of hw for AP world, but hey, that's part of the course.
